Cervical Disc Replacement

Cervical Disc Replacement Surgery

When the cervical vertebrae discs become damaged or diseased, they can cause intense neck and arm pain, as well as limited function. When conservative treatments do not offer relief, surgical options can be effective for giving relief. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we offer both non-surgical and surgical treatments for our patients with neck and back pain. For those with severe cervical discs or neck issues, one option we offer is cervical disc replacement surgery at our clinics in Georgia.

When a cervical disc is herniated or damaged, it can result in pressure on the nerves in the neck, causing pain and dysfunction. If non-invasive treatments are not effective, the best option may be removing the diseased or damaged cervical disc to relieve compression on the nerves. Cervical spine fusion is one option after the disc is removed to give the spine stability. Another option is cervical disc replacement surgery, using an artificial disc to replace the removed disc.

Benefits of Cervical Artificial Disc Replacement

While a spinal fusion after cervical disc removal may be the best option for some patients with a herniated cervical disc, others may benefit from a receiving an artificial disc to replace their herniated disc. The artificial disc allows more movement in the neck, with the replacement disc acting as the cushion between the vertebrae. Not only does this give quicker recovery of neck movement after surgery while relieving pressure on the spinal cord, it can be an alternative to a cervical fusion. Not all patients are good candidates for bone grafts and other components of spinal fusions, which can make cervical disc replacement surgery a better option.

If you have neck or arm pain due to a herniated cervical disc or other spine issues, contact our team at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. We offer a wide array of medical options for treating cervical disc and other neck issues, including cervical disc replacement surgery.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.

Hitting the Funny Bone Isn’t Funny

There is nothing hilarious about whacking your funny bone. In fact, the funny bone is not a bone. It is called that because of the funny – as in hard to describe – feeling you get when that part of the elbow is hit. What you are actually hitting is the ulnar nerve that runs from your neck to your hand. This nerve innervates muscles in the forearm and hand. The end of the nerve has two branches. The little finger and half the ring finger are innervated by these branches.
